The partisan politics of America has morphed into a facade of two-party competition, with each "side" competing with snazzy slogans while their leaderships wink at each other pretending concern over such as unemployment, homelessness, inferior education and medical care at double the costs of the superior international standard, and at the same time stimulating the profits of war and the lust for resources by  replacing the Sixth Commandment with "Support Our Troops."

Liberals, by voting for Barack Obama, betrayed the core values they use to define themselves--the rule of law, the safeguarding of civil liberties, the protection of unions, the preservation of social welfare programs, environmental accords, financial regulation, a defiance of unjust war and torture, and the abolition of drone wars."
